Origins of surname
This surname is common in France, although the spelling varies from department to department, and it is not particularly associated with Brittany and Normandy. It is derived from the personal name Theodbald (theod = 'people' + bald = 'audacious').
The pronunciation of all the variants in the first batch below is the same. The spelling Thebault is more common in Brittany and Normandy, but Tibot is by far the most common variant in Jersey.
Anne, the first child of Pierre Tibot and Rachel de Gruchy, was baptised in Trinity in 1762, followed by six siblings over the next 16 years.
